Publisher's Summary

Realmslayer is the most exciting project I have worked on in years, and playing Gotrek fired my imagination with wonder. He possesses enormous courage and imagination, and is totally fearless – more powerful than any hero in literature and history.

What a challenge! It was like playing ten King Lears at once! He will live forever.

(Brian Blessed, the voice of Gotrek Gurnisson in Realmslayer)

Gotrek Gurnisson was the greatest monster slayer of the age, who met his doom at the End Times. The heroic duardin stepped forth into the Realm of Chaos to fight the daemons gnawing at the world's ending and satisfy his death oath, leaving behind his companion Felix Jaeger. 

Now Gotrek has returned, having outlived the old gods and the Old World. Spat from the ruinous depths with his redemption unfulfilled, he emerges into the Mortal Realms, a strange new world where gods walk the earth and dark forces are ascendant. Nothing is as he remembers. His oaths are dust, and the lands are torn asunder by Chaos.   

Yet when Gotrek learns of human champions being elevated to immortality for Sigmar’s fight against this darkness, the so-called 'Stormcast Eternals', he knows why fate has brought him into this new age. To find Felix. For only then can he find the peace in death he seeks. But is there more to Gotrek's apotheosis than even he can fathom? Has he truly been chosen by Grimnir and for what purpose?

Amazing

This is very good. The performances are amazing. The story is fun and feels epic in scope. If you are not sold on Age of Sigmar this is a decent bridge between it and the old world.

Fantastic cast, Great story

As always, the Warhammer world story is brilliantly presented & the handling of an old world character in the new world environment is superbly done. Having that character voiced by no lesser person that Brian Blessed is the icing on a very fine cake! He will always be Gortek’s voice in my head when ever I re-read the books from this moment on...

Solid return for Gotrek

My only complaint is how brief everything is but its a surprisingly good return to form of the original series mixed with the straight high fantasy of the second authors books. The changes to Gotrek are appropriate for a dwarf stuck in the realm of Chaos for about ten thousand years and the characters that come along perfectly fitting.

Well voice acted, accompanying sound effects perfectly over the top, chapters get broken up into parts sort of like the originals in Trollslayer and Skavenslayer and is used to good effect. Very reminiscent of where the series started without being an uninspired series of repeats.

Now we need the original series done this way, plus all of Ciaphas Cain, Black Librarys latest effort for their audio have been amazing and these older series seeing new love is amazing.

An excellent story

Great, even if you're not familiar with the previous Felix and Gotrek fiction. All I knew going in was that they were a dwarf and a human who had some adventures.

Terrible

Gotreks fighting prowess is definitely not captured and the character feels different from the original, more soft, stupid and uninteresting. Stick to the original. Shouldn’t have touched the series and just left them as a legend. The writers are simply too different, and it is painfully disappointing.
